Happy Groundhog Day!

Today is the day Punxsutawney Phil, the illustrious groundhog from tiny Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, emerges from his hideout to make his annual prediction. Tradition has it that if Phil sees his shadow, we're in for six more weeks of winter. If he doesn't see his shadow, expect an early spring.

I'm not sure how accurate the woodchuck's forecasts are, but you can learn the history of this bizarre custom and find out Phil's prediction at: http://groundhog.visitpa.com/index.html

Did you know that Punxsutawney Phil starred in a movie? He appeared with Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell in the brilliant romantic comedy Groundhog Day. The film is about an egocentric weatherman who learns compassion when he has to relive one day of his life--Groundhog Day--over and over again. If you haven't already seen this movie, check it out. It's a doozy!
